Can nihilism be cured? if so, how?
Try CBD oil, sold in most health food stores.

I have a theory that it is form of depression as it seems close to dispair to me. I am not a medical practitioner but this is just an observation from a lay point of view. If someone is given hope that their circumstances will get better then their outlook on life improves, this can be done with therapy. If their Nihilistic views are caused by depression which is a mental illness, then either CBT therapy as I outlined above or drugs can improve their mindset. I know that the movement itself has its origins in Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century, but whatever or whoever started it probably attracted a certain type of melancholic personality to follow it. My son suffers from an illness on the depression spectrum and when he hadn’t been diagnosed properly a number of years ago he displayed alarmingly Nihilistic beliefs. This is what I am drawing my conclusions on.
